There’s no better place to start than at the beginning. By default, as soon as OAS-7 has loaded the touch-screen displays the Main screen, as shown in the article (though the detailed appearance differs slightly between instruments and installations). In this article, (click on the title to download the pdf file) the Main screen forms the centre-piece around which are placed labels explaining briefly what each section is about.
The Selectors tab is to the right of the Main tab along the top of the screen. It contains two screens, the second one being selected by touching the Advanced button on the first screen. This article is about the first screen and can be downloaded as a pdf file by clicking on the above title.
This article continues the investigation of the Selectors tab by examining the Advanced screen. It can be downloaded as a pdf file by clicking on the above title.
This article looks at both screens under the Acc tab: the first Accompaniment screen and the Advanced screen.
This is the first article looking at the Quickload button on the Main screen. The Presets button and the first screen of the Styles button are presented in detail.
This article continues by looking at quickloading Styles and the Accompaniment Manager screen. The “Edit ACC” column is investigated in detail, including how to use the “Variation Presets” (Var Presets) button which is not described in any Manual.
This article looks at the final tab of the Quickload Screen, “Sounds”.
On the Main Screen the Total Preset Status Bar has two functions, depending upon the length of time it is touched. This article explores each of these functions.
On the Selectors screen there is a button labelled “Sub-Presets”. This is the first in a series of articles which investigates these.
This completes a look at the Reverb Sub-Presets by covering the second panel, “Other soundgenera(tion)”.
This article covers the use and function of the Chorus Sub-Presets feature.
This article looks at the Delay Sub-Preset settings and what they do.
This article covers the features to be found under the Mixer Tab. There are many different settings which can be made there and they can change considerably the sound a Wersi instrument makes. Settings can be stored in Presets and any one of those can be included in a Total Preset as an alternative to the default Mixer Preset.
This article covers the features to be found under the Outputs Tab.
The material under this Tab is quite vast and pulls together many of the strands of the OAS, including providing instrument information and access to the various Wersi databases. For this reason, three articles are being devoted to this Tab. This first article covers all the items in column one of the Tabs screen.
For this article we move onto the middle column of features under this tab. This includes MIDI Settings, Activation-Keys, System/Installation, OAS - Database and Backup above the language selection panel. Below that panel are buttons devoted to PlugIn Administration (to use if you add any VSTs), Remote Octave (featured earlier under Articles > OAA) and Hardware which will probably not be used by most Wersi owners.
The final article in this series covers the third column of functions on the Settings screen. Although produced from R41, there have been some changes in the Settings screen in R43. These have been referred to in this article.
